Cell Morphology

There is an increased public awareness about the potential health hazards of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) [Zhadin, 2001; Hardell and Sage, 2008; Frei et al., 2012]. The influence of magnetic and electric fields on organs, tissues, and cells has been investigated during the past 30 years [Ottani et al., 1988; King, 1999; Funk et al., 2009]. EMF is reported to influence a wide variety of biological systems such as bone, skin and hematologic. For example, several in vitro studies have suggested that EMF affects the cellular physiology of many types of human cells [Masiuk et al., 2008; Sullivan et al., 2011]. In physical medicine, particularly, low frequency EMF has been applied clinically for early healing of wounds and certain musculocutaneous and musculotendinous lesions. However, most of these clinical studies are based on experience rather than scientific evidence.
